SEYMOUR JOHNSON AIR FORCE BASE, N.C. --
Medics of the 4th Medical Group formally opened their new facility June 15, 2018, with a ribbon-cutting ceremony and a reception giving people a sneak peek of the building.
The building will keep the name of the previous facility "4th Medical Group Thomas Kortiz Clinic," in honor of Maj. (Dr.) Tom Kortiz, who was a dual-rated pilot-physician assigned to the 335th Tactical Fighter Squadron, ultimately killed in January 1991 while supporting Operation Desert Storm.
The new facility is a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, which is expected to save up to 30 percent on energy consumption annually compared to the previous building.
